The "Indisputable Word of God"
14-billion-years-later: Cannot have any other meaning. You cannot say that something is both up to interpretation and also undeniably true. If God were real I doubt he would leave his important messages to chance. I am tired of people telling me that I do not understand the message, or that I do not know enough. I understand the universe to a relatively high degree, it does not matter if I do...
“Roundabout”-Yes What a jam!
If at first you don't succeed,
Who the hell knows what's on the horizon
The next months will be a rollercoaster. I can feel it. I just hope the safety bar stays tight against my waist. I love rollercoasters. I suck at “Artist of the Day” So maybe instead “Thats Life” — Sinatra
To sleep would be best, but I just can’t afford the rest. And the white line keeps getting longer. I’m much too young to feel this damn old
Artist of the Day: Incubus
A lot of people only remember “Drive” and “Wish You Were Here” from when it was “cool” to listen to Incubus. Sure, those are great songs, but Incubus’s repertoire is so much deeper than that. The lyrics and the instruments are in such harmony with each other. They’ve gone through a few transitions throughout their alt-metal tenure… SCIENCE is...
Artist of the Day (or perhaps the year): Radiohead
I love the shit out of Radiohead. I can’t even put my finger on exactly why. It took me a long time to get into them. Pretty much everyone can get their heads around “Creep”—it was my first exposure to Radiohead and the only song of theirs I liked for a while. I bought a greatest hits CD and fell in love with “Karma Police” and “High and Dry”. ...
Artist of the Day: Surfer Blood
I thought surf-rock died out in the mid-sixties… Surfer Blood has managed to resurrect the formerly dead genre and bring it back with a vengeance. They’ve kept the stereotypical über-reverbed clean guitars and the snare drums, but updated the sound to modern standards. Indie surf-rock, I guess. The lyrics are mostly about drug use and relationships. Not either or, but rather Drug...
Artist of the Day: Creedence Clearwater Revival
If I were stranded on a small, uninhabited island, given a solar, coconut-battery, or otherwise sustainably-powered CD player and only one album, I would easily pick CCR’s “Chronicle (Vol 1)”. Not only is every song on it absolute gold, they are arranged wonderfully so that they all flow together in one cohesive jam. Emotions run free, and so do the themes—from political...

sunshinespeopleforget: There is a very fine line you walk, being a Classic Rock fan. In my experience, when you tell somebody you’re a fan of classic rock, there are two main things that people picture you to be. The first is the hick; the backwater, immature moron who goes cow tipping, listens to Lynyrd Skynyrd,…
